Denia Zerouali

French photographer based in Brussels


Portrait is the main subject of her work

Portrait is the main subject of her work. She is fascinated by the complexity of emotions revealed in a portrait
What we see, what we discover when trying to read a face…
Searching for a kind of truth, looking for answers… Nothing more fascinating than human face….

Denia started photography in the early 90’s.
She collaborated with French newspaper Liberation for a while before her talent was quickly recognized by advertising agencies.
She shot advertising campaigns for several years, working for famous international advertising agencies.

In 2007, Denia Zerouali established Photographes Productions, a production company she created to produce her own work and those of her colleague photographers and directors.

In 2010, Denia was commissioned by the Belgian Presidency of the European Union for a serie of portraits of international scientists.
The resulting exhibition was shown at the Musées Royaux des Beaux Arts de Belgique,
at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, the Parc Royal, and the Université Catholique de Louvain.

In 2012 her work was exhibited at the Palais des Beaux Arts as a part of the RTBF art collection.

Her interest and fascination for the human nature brought her to discover Therapeutic Photography, a discipline which considers photography not only as an Art but also as a form of emotional communication.
She continues to explore this path through her personal work, and has started to collaborate with psychotherapists and psychologists.

Beside all these activities, and as a need of transmit her 25 years experience in photography, Denia organizes workshops for students and all those who want to discover and practice photography.
